Explosive new reporting from the Washington Post has left legal experts absolutely stunned, Americans with even more questions than ever before, and former President Donald Trump likely facing down a new round of even more legal peril and scandal, as the newspaper revealed that an outside team, hired by none other than the ex-president’s own legal team, has discovered at least two more classified items that were inside a Florida storage unit being rented by Donald Trump — serving as cold, hard proof that the corrupt former president had and likely continues to have additional classified materials at locations other than his Mar-a-Lago resort that was raided by the FBI earlier this year.
The Washington Post spoke with sources who allegedly have insider knowledge on the matter, who confirmed that the classified items in question were immediately turned over to the Federal Bureau of Investigation upon their discovery. According to the source, the materials were found by a two-person outside team that was hired and overseen by Donald Trump’s own attorneys with the task of thoroughly searching a total of four properties owned by ex-President Trump.
The General Services Administration — an entity tasked with assisting former US presidents with their transition from the White House back to their lives as private American citizens — has recently released emails showing that the agency assisted Donald Trump with procuring a unit at a private storage facility back in July of 2021. The purpose of the storage unit was apparently to house various items that were once used by Trump staffers in northern Virginia following Donald’s tumultuous departure from the White House.
The GSA worked with said Trump staffers in September of 2021 to arrange for pallets of boxes and other various items, weighing upwards of 3,000 pounds, to be transported from Virginia to the storage facility unit in the state of Florida, where Trump now resides. An individual familiar with the situation and the storage unit specifically told the newspaper that there was no cataloging of the items that were transported and ultimately stored at the Florida unit.

The source told the Post, “It was suits and swords and wrestling belts and all sorts of things. To my knowledge, he has never even been to that storage unit. I don’t think anyone in Trump world could tell you what’s in that storage unit.”
It remains unclear what specific classified items and materials were discovered in the Trump-rented storage unit. However, this bombshell development serves as irrefutable proof that, while the DOJ did issue and complete an FBI search and seizure warrant raid at Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort turned post-White House home, where they discovered thousands of documents and materials, the Palm Beach compound is not the only place the ex-president has stashed classified materials.
Recently, the Trump legal team called on the DOJ, which has long assumed that Trump is holding classified materials elsewhere to this day, to observe a search they would be conducting at Donald’s Bedminster resort, an offer that the Justice Department ultimately declined. However, Trump’s attorneys did not extend the same offer to the Department of Justice when it came to the searches at two other Trump properties, including Trump Tower, or the storage unit in question.
